Richardson-Schliecker wedding

Elizabeth Kate Katherine Richardson of New Castle and Douglas Scott Schliecker of Grand Junction were married on Sept. 14, 2013.

Elizabeth is the daughter of Lynn and Katherine Richardson. She graduated from Rifle High School and Fort Lewis College. She works at Family Health West in Fruita.

Douglas is the son of Les Schliecker and Cathy Bertolin. He graduated from Pomona High School and WyoTech. He works for Summit Midstream.

The ceremony was held on the Richardson property on Garfield Creek, close to New Castle — known as the Barkin Dawg Ranch to friends and family members — with the Rev. Amelia Richardson Dress officiating. The bride was escorted to the ceremony site by Dolly and Daisy, two draft horses pulling the small carriage. Intermittent rain showers neither held up the ceremony nor the celebration that followed. All guests were treated to a horse and carriage ride along with a country-style pig roast. Lots of games and dancing ensued before the bride and groom exited for their honeymoon.

Maid of honor was Callie Daniel Sykes. Bridesmaids were Selina Tolson, Bernadette Richardson and Amelia Richardson Dress. Best man was Adam Miller, and groomsmen were Zac Harvey, Tony Widegren and Matthew Schliecker. Annalise Richardson and Isabel Dress were flower girls.

The couple enjoyed their time away from Colorado deep sea fishing in Newport, Ore., and make their home in Grand Junction.
